Emmaville Primary School

GSSP England Netball Festival

12th February 2024

Congratulations to the children in KS2 who represented Emmaville at the Gateshead School Sports Partnership England Netball Festival on Monday this week – Bodie, Joshua, Lilyann, Maisie, Erin, Ellie, Lennon and Leo.
The children spent the morning practising their skills with two representatives from Netball England and the sports leaders from Lord Lawson school. There were six drills in total and the children were well and truly ‘warmed up’ by the end of the morning session.
The children approached their tournament games in the afternoon a little tentatively; however, as the tournament progressed, their confidence and skills grew and they went from strength to strength and finished really strongly. The secret of their success was realising that they had to work as a team to be successful.
The attitude of the children and their ‘never say die’ approach was really impressive. It was also fantastic to see how well they applauded their opposition at the end of each match.
Well done to you all!
